Prime time in midcoast Maine - The Boston Globe: "There's a sign outside Rock City Books & Coffee in Rockland, Maine, that reads:
The air has a freshness . . .
The mornings are cool . . .
The light . . . well, it makes everyone
Want to be a painter or photographer
This is autumn's love song
Nowhere is that song more sweetly sung than in midcoast Maine, a region that encompasses such postcard-pretty communities as Camden, Rockport, Rockland, Lincolnville, and seven others. Through Columbus Day and often beyond, activities include sailing, golf, visiting world-class museums, browsing shops for everything from antiques to kitsch, and consuming the state's fabled lobsters."
